I have recently started reading Star Wars EU , and I am starting from the begining. Which means, I have just finished The Old Republic Era novels.

I am moving on to the Rise of Empire Era, and I am wondering which books to go for? Mainly ones that follow canon as closely as possible, and which books actually matter to the universe?

thanks ib advance

Hey Welcome Necrom!

You do know that Rise of the Empire era is a pretty long and large right?
Plus it's probably the most self contradictive era of them all, in no small part due to TCW cartoon.

I realise that this is probably not what you were going for here, but novel adaptations of the PT films follow G canon the most.

You could always go for the original Clone Wars run - the six books consisting of Shatterpoint, Cestus Deception, Medstar I, Medstar II, Jedi Trial, Yoda: Dark Rendezvous.

Don't forget Labyrinth of Evil, which sets up Episode III very well, and Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader, set immediately after Episode III.

And the novelization of Episode III is widely considered one of the best EU books there is.
